Chocolate dinosaur egg (plastic free)
If you're crazy about dinosaurs then this is the egg for you.
This fun and quirky handmade egg is completely unique. Every egg is hand decorated and moulded from extra thick layers of high quality smooth chocolate.
Every egg contains one baby chocolate dinosaur - Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Diplodocus or Triceratops - you won't find out which until it hatches!

To make your dinosaur eggs we first decorate our egg moulds with edible cocoa butter paints. Next, our chocolate fairies expertly temper a large vat of our sustainably sourced smooth signature chocolate. This involves melting chocolate couverture to exactly the correct temperature that it pre-crystallises, thus ensuring that ‘melt-in-the-mouth’ smooth texture when eaten. Once tempered, the chocolate is poured into the egg and dinosaur moulds. Each egg is made up of two or three extra thick layers of delicious chocolate. The final stage is for the dinos and eggs to be popped out of their moulds and assembled and packaged with care.
We believe in simple, natural flavours derived from real ingredients, with no nasties added. This, along with the care and attention we give to each individual product- from sustainably sourcing ingredients and packaging, to production and boxing up to be shipped- really sets our chocolate apart from the highstreet ‘norm’.
We are proud that this is a plastic free product. Your dinosaur egg will arrive wrapped in pretty foil (for freshness), inside a smart karft card box (to protect it from premature cracking!). Both the foil and card can be responsibly disposed of in your household recycling (or perhaps the recipient of your gift will recycle it creatively in some art work!).
